Rock On

Mother-daughter design team Tulianna and Alejandra Garces transform natural slate stones harvested from the isles of Vermont into breathtaking organic jewelry. To make these eye-catching drop earrings, slender, finger-shaped stones are collected from the Vermont shoreline and refined into rustic beads. The makers then affix tender, hammered-bronze accents to the stones, creating dimensional beads with the slightest hint of shimmer. The earrings are suspended from 24k gold-plated earring wires. Handcrafted in Vermont.

Make it a set! Pair with the Hand Forged Slate and Bronze Statement Necklace or Hand Forged Slate and Bronze Pendant necklace.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Vermont

It’s been several decades since mother-daughter duo Tulianna and Alejandra Garces emigrated from Colombia. However, the Vermont-based jewelry makers stay connected to their homeland via their collection of dipped-lace jewelry, which is crafted in the South American country by artisans trained by the Garces women. “A large part of [our] mission is to encourage these artisans to maintain their cultural traditions while also being able to support their families,” Tulianna says.

While the Garces’ dipped-lace styles draw inspiration from pre-Columbian jewelry traditions, Tulianna and Alejandra have recently branched out into locally made pieces as well, which they handcraft in their studio. The designs feature organic materials sourced in Vermont, continuing to ground their work in a sense of place–and home.

Care
Remove before showering or exercising, and do not get the pieces wet. These pieces do not require cleaning; as the piece ages the aesthetic will also mature resulting in a priceless antique look. However, if you would like to clean the bronze you should use jewelry cleaning cloths and be very gentle when cleaning the pieces.
